You asked what sets Florida apart from Edmonton. Some of us have pointed out just a few things. Then you use that as "evidence" that we "didnt bother to read" your post.

At this point I have to assume you are trolling.
Because what you've pointed out has absolutely zero to do with what I'm talking about.

Katz' had no deal. Katz had a framework for initial financing worked out for his arena. Where do you get this idea that there was a deal in place? Katz had to go back and rework the figures because the initial framework was like an entire year stale. City council sat on their butts and basically did nothing while costs and construction changed, as these things do.

Now you're telling me they're going to just build it themselves and hand all that revenue over to Katz anyway? Then what's the freakin' point??

To spite him? It would make sense. Edmonton likes to run their millionaires/billionaires outta town.
